Stuck Sewer Hose Connection Solution

Anyone ever have their sewer hose get stuck on the TT's outlet? I had this happen in a steady rain last year. I left my inlaws in the rain and went to a Love's to dump the Black and Grey tanks. There must have been a lot of sand kicked up on the TT outlet. I rinsed it off as best I could, but must not have removed all the sand. So after dumping in the rain (worst designed dump station in the world), I go to remove my sewer hose from the TT. It won't budge. Spent 1/2 hour in the rain trying to get it disconnected. I was finally able to work it free.

Solution I came up with....pair of $5 strap wrenches from harbor freight. Saw those and immediately bought the set. Now if that hose get's stuck I can get a little more leverage. I've already had to use it twice. The viper hose seems to have a very tight fit/connection. Cheap and lightweight fix.

I have 3 of those -small, medium, large - and I WAS going to leave them behind. After reading this, I'm taking them along.
